This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)


Java BigDecimal

Here is another reason why Java's BigDecimal is not very useful.  Try this:

BigDecimal.ONE.divide(new BigDecimal("3"))

You'll get this exception:

java.lang.ArithmeticException: Non-terminating decimal expansion; no exact representable decimal result.

Java sorely needs a rational type.
